A paradoxical serenity of linearity pervades \u201cCarl Safe: The Architecture of Buildings, Furniture and Photographs,\u201d on display at The Sheldon Concert Hall & Art Galleries through Feb. 17.

That free exhibition, which opened Oct. 6 in The Sheldon\u2019s Bernoudy Gallery of Architecture, presents a career-to-date retrospective of the work of Safe, who serves both as professor emeritus with the Sam Fox School of Design & Art at Washington University in St. Louis (where he has taught since 1970) and as principal at University City\u2019s Carl Safe Design Consultants.

The paradox implicit in the exhibition derives from the degree to which its simplicity of presentation as a product, for want of a better phrase, belies the complexity of the process underlying that product from baseline heuristics onward.

\u201cThis exhibit grew out of a conversation in which I was asked if my architectural design work, my furniture design and my photography had any relationship to one another, whether or not they informed each other, and if so, how,\u201d Safe relates in a short meditation both online and on-site. \u201cIt was a good question for which I had no clear response. Curating this exhibit was a way of discovering an answer for myself.\u201d

That mission notwithstanding, the professor\u2019s modesty might incline him to reticence \u2013 but for his telling personal history.

\u201cI don\u2019t really know,\u201d Safe admits when asked what sparked his interest in architecture enough to make it a lifetime career, adding that he came of age in rural Wisconsin under \u201cformally uneducated\u201d parents.

\u201cAs a child, I never met an architect, but from a very young age, I started drawing buildings, and I guess I just never stopped. I can\u2019t remember a time that I didn\u2019t want to do that, even before I knew what an architect and architecture were.

\u201cAt some point, I did hear about Frank Lloyd Wright, whose studio, Taliesen, was in southern Wisconsin. [He was] \u2018the architect that everyone knew.\u2019 At some point, I became aware that designing buildings was something people did for a living, and I started figuring out how I could go about doing it. Even today, I can\u2019t imagine doing anything else.\u201d

Visitors to The Sheldon\u2019s tripartite retrospective should give thanks for that, starting with the exhibition\u2019s architectural component.

Examples of Safe\u2019s expertise in that area range from a 1994 birdhouse (no, really) of red and white oak, conceived and crafted for a charity auction, to a 1980 backyard fence of 1\u00bd-inch-diameter steel pipe in seven doubly curved segments.

Intriguingly, a conceptual drawing accompanying the fence display reads, in red, \u201cREJECTED IDEA,\u201d before continuing in a scarlet scrawl, \u201cSometimes you just make really bad proposals \u2013 with luck you have the self-discipline to set them aside and move on.\u201d

Other examples of Safe\u2019s architectural expertise focus, copiously, on a St. Louis County home that bloomed from an unrealized 1972 Lake St. Louis project. Called Residence K, that home\u2019s Sheldon display involves five mini floor plans, almost two dozen photographs and a 2- by 2\u00bd-foot detail sheet, a grid comprising 72 finish details. It also looks, to an admittedly amateur eye, Miesian \u2013 reflecting, perhaps, the International Style aesthetic of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The photos just mentioned document Residence K\u2019s development \u2013 mostly utilitarian stuff. Beyond practical applications attendant on architectural projects, though, Safe\u2019s photographic works \u201care informed by his sensibilities as an architect,\u201d states a plaque near the entrance to the exhibition. Half a dozen or so larger photos, printed with archival inks on 100 percent cotton paper and hung at the front and the rear of the gallery, corroborate that statement.

The professor himself cites a photographic goal of \u201ccapturing some instance [or] moment of human interaction in the built environment. Photographs can tell stories, and I look for that possibility in what I shoot.\u201d

A humanitarian aesthetic similar to that embodied in his photography characterizes Safe\u2019s work with furniture, which he calls \u201cthe most intimate architecture.\u201d Further, that in the Sheldon exhibition largely comprises one particular type of furniture: the table.

An online brief for a furniture design class the professor has taught at the Sam Fox School suggests the rationale for that: \u201cThe course focuses on tables specifically because, intrinsically, so few demands are placed on them. Almost anything is, or can be, a table. Any horizontal surface held up by some support can qualify as a \u2018table.\u2019 If that\u2019s the case, the issue of \u2018designing a table\u2019 precipitates the demand of exploring \u2018why\u2019 or \u2018what table.\u2019 What does \u2018table\u2019 mean? What makes the table matter? Is the table site-specific or generic, use-specific or general?\u201d

Appropriately, one of the most striking examples of Safe\u2019s tabular work involves a bit of architectural history. A 2010 piece titled Cicero \u201cresulted from a demolition in the process of working on the expansion of [University City\u2019s] Blueberry Hill into the space previously occupied by Cicero\u2019s,\u201d explains a plaque in the gallery. \u201cWorkers removed sections of marble that were part of the old street fa\u00e7ade and threw them into a dumpster. I selected one of the broken, irregular sections and asked a fabricator to cut the largest square possible from it.\u201d

To support that gorgeous piece of stone, Safe then fashioned a base of chromed stainless steel, each of whose legs differs from the others \u2013 with one cylindrical, the second a rectangular solid, the third an inverted triangular construct and the fourth an arboreal irregularity with a quintet of thin \u201cbranches\u201d rising from a central \u201ctrunk.\u201d

Given his comment about \u201cthe most intimate architecture,\u201d Safe provides one final surprise. When asked to identify a favorite furnishing from his own home, the professor, funnily and sweetly, goes with \u2026 something other than a table. \u201cIt\u2019s a traditional, beautiful glass curio cabinet with curved glass corners that was my mother\u2019s,\u201d Safe says. \u201cIt\u2019s a sentimental treasure.\u201d

My Thanksgiving dinner table setting always includes a colorful centerpiece incorporating not only multihued gourds but also vivid green Osage oranges.

Osage oranges make a beautiful stacked pyramid complemented by a few equally green cymbidium orchid blossoms tucked into the nooks. Any way you display them, they add grace and sophistication to home d\u00e9cor.

I used to collect mine from the historic row at the Missouri Botanical Garden, but in recent years, I\u2019ve scavenged them wherever I can.

If you don\u2019t have your own tree, fruits are often available at local farmers markets or from online vendors. Also, a tree in Compton Heights drops its aromatic orbs into the gutter, and another occupies a utility right-of-way in nearby Wildwood, where I gather them without guilt. Worth the hunt, these amazing fruits provide visual delight, a soft citrus fragrance and a delightfully chartreuse, warty skin.

About the size of a grapefruit, these nubby, slightly sticky green balls come from a tree named Maclura, in the mulberry family. Called bois d\u2019arc by the French and bodark or bow-wood by English speakers, its wood once was valued by Native Americans for making bows and other weapons.

Originally found farther south, along the rivers of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, plants were brought north by tribes who appreciated their qualities. The first plants sent to Thomas Jefferson by Lewis and Clark, they were found by the famed explorers growing in Pierre Chouteau\u2019s garden near the St. Louis waterfront. Chouteau admired them in a village of Osages, collected them and brought them home for his own garden.

In that era, the tree\u2019s extremely hard wood well suited it for fence posts and railroad ties. That same rich golden, durable wood also made beautiful bowls, plates and candlesticks. Later settlers discovered they could prune the thorny trees into living hedges strong enough to contain hogs and bulls \u2013 hence the other common name of hedge-apple.

Macluras gain character as they become gnarly with age. Several venerable trees still thrive along the old driveway into the Missouri Botanical Garden. Dating from the time of Henry Shaw, these ancient trees can still be enjoyed in the Doris I. Schnuck Children\u2019s Garden, west of the Climatron.

Several more trees of this vintage grow in nearby Tower Grove Park. Best enjoyed on large properties and estates where the dropping fruits pose no safety hazard, it ill serves as a courtyard tree for small gardens.

To guarantee my future supply of Osage oranges, I bought one for my West County garden years ago. Silly me \u2013 I planted it too close to the trail, and once established, low-hanging branches would swipe at me with sharp thorns. Remembering the pruning habits of the early sodbusters, I didn\u2019t hesitate to take loppers to the most egregious branch and then tied the others high on a training post to keep them out of the way.

After Thanksgiving, we\u2019ve always pitched the blackening fruits into the woods from the back deck. In more than a decade of tossing, I\u2019ve had only one small tree emerge, but it is growing well and may help augment my future supply of tabletop decorations.

What I won\u2019t know for a few more years is if my trees are male or female. Like ginkgoes, the trees each have individual sexes, and only the females bear fruit.

So, Osage oranges \u2013 use these unusual and beautiful fruits on the dinner table to make a great conversation starter and biology lesson all in one!

Situated on one of St. Louis\u2019 premier private streets, this historic Central West End home captivates inside and out. A gated drive leads you to this 1908 Italian-style estate, first introducing you to the private rear garden and terrace, plus carriage house. Step inside to uncover an elegant, open flow from the entry hall to the living and dining rooms, with light filtering through and accentuating the beautiful original millwork.

Leading into the family room, a lovely fireplace and French door light up the space. The handsome main staircase guides you upstairs to the bedrooms, offering a perfect place to perch midway, just below the exquisite stained glass window, with a book in hand. Additional amenities include a library with built-ins, an updated laundry room and gorgeous architectural details.

Traditional: Edwin Pepper Interiors

Family heirlooms in a fall harvestlike setting make for a meaningful, beautiful Thanksgiving tablescape, Pepper Jacoby says.

Amid a cream, gold and white color scheme with splashes of blue, burgundy and marigold, this table setting is layered with cherished memorabilia, from heirloom fine china and candlesticks to framed family photos. \u201cThanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things you\u2019re thankful for,\u201d Pepper Jacoby says. \u201cTo keep it personal, in front of each plate is a message about something you\u2019re thankful for this year, such as family, faith and health.\u201d

Schulman says it\u2019s important to display varying heights on your holiday table, from tall flowers to tapered candles and layers of fabrics. One-foot-square Calcutta marble pieces were used in lieu of placemats, with dishware at each place setting. Custom napkins and ring holders as well as the fabrics used were fabricated in Edwin Pepper Interiors\u2019 in-house workroom.

To set the holiday mood, Pepper Jacoby also advises adding accents that appeal to all of the senses and bring in the feel of the season, from adding fresh greenery and grapes in floral arrangements, to using leaves for nameplates and candles for a seasonal scent and intimate lighting.

A Thanksgiving table is more than a dining setting; it has sentiment to it, Pepper Jacoby says. \u201cYou want there to be really personal touches, such as family photos and a blending of family heirlooms from those who are not there and those who are,\u201d she continues. \u201cNo two settings are alike, and we use some very valuable items along with items like leaves from our own yard for the nameplates. And we always incorporate peppers in our family tablescapes because of our last name. And even though it was my home, Tricia brought a lot to the table, as we would for any client \u2013 it was a true collaboration.\u201d

Rustic: Rusted Chandelier

With wooden accents, fall hues and dried foliage, this outdoorsy Thanksgiving tablescape takes inspiration from nature, Porter says.

Atop a 12-foot-long farm table, each setting is layered with a large wooden cutting board and leopard-print fabric to serve as the placemat, with a khaki-colored, black-trimmed charger and a blue-and-white plate, as well as adjacent pewter goblets, linen napkins and glass votives topped with pumpkins. The centerpiece boasts silk and dried foliage and seasonal florals, from pine branches and cones to bittersweet, all arranged in a wooden container.

Porter says the eclectic textures and patterns, along with seasonal foliage, give the table a rustic touch. \u201cWhat I love to do this time of year is bring the outside in,\u201d Porter says of the rich fall foliage color palette.

To achieve this type of rustic-inspired tablescape, it\u2019s important to have a beautiful focal point and then surround it with layers of natural elements in the colors of the season, along with your fine china, Porter notes. \u201cYou\u2019re bringing in the outdoors, and dressing it up with your china,\u201d she says.

Modern/Glam: Savvy Surrounding Style

An elegant color palette of gold and white, velvet fabrics and metallic accents make for a luxurious Thanksgiving tablescape.

Fogerty says the modern glam aesthetic is timeless. \u201cGlam style requires dimmed lighting with reflective surfaces,\u201d she explains. \u201cThe shimmer of the gold accents and white blown-glass pumpkins will reflect candlelight and create a beautiful ambiance.\u201d

Gold and white form a simple yet elegant color palette, Fogerty notes. \u201cIt creates a polished and refined table with a fashionable and modern feel,\u201d she says. \u201cThe simplicity of the copper plates and cutlery add another metallic element, but do not distract from the centerpiece.\u201d

Florals don\u2019t have to be the central focus of the table, Fogerty explains. \u201cI included florals in the room setting,\u201d she says. \u201cIn doing this, you can set your table days in advance of [the] Thanksgiving meal.\u201d

Layering different textures is also important, Fogerty says. \u201cLuxurious fabrics heighten the look, with creamy white velvet pumpkins and crisp white linen napkins edged in gold beads,\u201d she explains.

For Thanksgiving, Fogerty recommends using pieces that transition from fall into the Christmas holidays. \u201cGold is a great transitional color,\u201d she notes. \u201cAnd the velvet and glass pumpkins are great fall staples that can be easily incorporated into the Thanksgiving table.\u201d

Liston - Kelly residence--4.jpg

For more than 30 years, the Listons have constructed their homebuilding and remodeling business on a foundation of trust. Liston Design Build, a St. Charles-based, family-owned company formerly known as Liston Construction, knows that building or renovating your home is a very personal project, notes co-owner Keith Liston.

\u201cPeople have to trust who they are bringing into their home \u2013 and if you can\u2019t trust family, who can you trust?\u201d he says. \u201cWe build projects with our clients \u2013 not for them.\u201d

\"Keith
Keith and Jeanne Liston.jpg

In 1984, Keith\u2019s dad, Mike Liston, started Liston Construction as a one-man operation with a no-job-is-too-small approach to home-remodeling projects. Through the years, the business expanded its services, gradually taking on larger renovation projects and, eventually, custom home-builds. Keith joined the family business in 1986 and took the helm in 2009.

Today, the recently rebranded Liston Design Build reflects the company\u2019s expanded services, led by Keith\u2019s building expertise and the design skills of his wife and co-owner, Jeanne. As the business also recently added new team members, it outgrew its office and moved to a new location at 1106 First Capitol Drive in St. Charles, where the staff has the space and technology it needs to assist more clients.

Liston Design Build provides a full slate of homebuilding, remodeling and design services, from new construction to renovations of kitchens, baths, lower levels and outdoor living spaces. \u201cNew construction is a bigger piece of the business now, with our production manager [and son-in-law], Scott Weaver, and project manager, Rob Barton, bringing a wealth of custom homebuilding experience,\u201d says Keith. The construction team also includes two master carpenters, two apprentices and a laborer.

Liston Design Build works side-by-side with clients to ensure each choice for their home fits their family, Keith explains. A distinct asset in this process is the firm\u2019s design arm, led by Jeanne and her and Keith\u2019s daughter, Andrea Liston, a design consultant. \u201cJeanne has a good design eye,\u201d Keith notes. \u201cAnd Andrea, who has an architectural studies degree from University of Missouri, provides the \u2018HGTV experience\u2019 because she can do all the computer-aided design drawings for clients to see the \u2018before and after\u2019 of what their home will look like.\u201d

The goal is to design each family\u2019s dream home or to seamlessly remodel a space in their house so that it retains its flow, Keith says. \u201cPeople walk into a showroom and think, \u2018Where do we start?\u2019 because there are so many choices out there. Jeanne and Andrea can take clients through the process in bite-sized pieces, from selecting cabinet and flooring finishes all the way down to the perfect cabinet pull. We provide peace of mind while making the design process fun and enjoyable.\u201d

After clients have made selections, they can see a rendering of what the finished project will look like, Keith explains. \u201cMost of the time, they fall in love with the design, but sometimes there might be something they didn\u2019t expect, and we can tweak it. The [computer-aided design technology] gives us the ability to fine-tune the design before the hammer hits the nail.\u201d

A common theme Liston Design Build has discovered through the years is transition: Customers are looking to build or renovate a house to meet their family\u2019s current and future needs, from open-concept living and kitchen spaces to expansions through an outdoor living area and finished lower level, or even a unique addition, such as a wine cellar, bar, home theater or sports court.

Liston\u2019s recent remodel of a Maryland Heights home featured a transitional-style revamp of the kitchen and four bathrooms, complete with custom millwork. \u201cIt turned a house from the mid-1990s into a current, transitional home, with a blend of traditional and contemporary features,\u201d Keith says.

Another recent project entailed a kitchen expansion and a bedroom addition for a traditional-style Ladue home. \u201cThe kitchen is still the heart of the home, and they needed to add a bedroom for a third child,\u201d Keith explains.

Although its core business remains remodeling, the company has expanded its custom homebuilding division, currently working on a 5,000-square-foot house, to be complete with a finished lower level and an outdoor living space.

This year, Liston has been lauded by home remodeling and interior design website Houzz for its customer service and design expertise. \u201cWe have five-star ratings from client reviews,\u201d Keith says, adding that he credits the design honor to his team\u2019s attention to detail. \u201cEverything is given a lot of consideration during each project, from the layout of the kitchen to the cabinet finish and hardware.\u201d

The result is about more than building a house \u2013 it\u2019s about building a relationship, Keith says, noting that 80 percent of the firm\u2019s projects result from repeat and referral business. \u201cThe end of each project is bittersweet, but our expectation is you\u2019re going to give our name to others, and we\u2019re going to be back to do more in your home,\u201d he says. \u201cAfter a project, we like to give hugs \u2013 not handshakes.\u201d With Liston Design Build, it certainly seems as if everyone is family.

What\u2019s better than one architecturally significant home? One architecturally significant home quite literally inside a second house, of course! That\u2019s exactly what you\u2019ll find at one-of-a-kind 110 Dielman Road in Ladue, the 2017 Ladue News Show House.

Originally built in the 1930s, 110 Dielman Road started out as a charming stone cottage featuring a pattern of triangles and horizontal lines in light gray. Decades later, a massive contemporary addition was added, but unlike modern additions built onto the back of a home, this one engulfed the property, leaving the cottage and its stonework as the nucleus for the extensive estate.

Samantha Goldenhersh grew up in the home from 1987 to 1998, when the majority of the major renovations took place. Her mother and father, Jennifer and Mark Goldenhersh, bought it from Mark\u2019s childhood friends\u2019 parents, the Broida family. They made substantial improvements to the home, including adding the great room, movie theater, additional bathrooms and upstairs loft. Her father even had a tennis court built on the property, although it was later removed by a subsequent owner.

Today, 110 Dielman Road features four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a half-bathroom throughout its 5,175-square-foot interior. The new exterior features oversize windows framing the view of 2-plus acres of property. Inside, the original stonework abounds, as well as other show-stopping design details like multiple vaulted wood-beam ceilings and a cobbled stone-and-marble floor.

Ted Wight of Dielmann Sotheby\u2019s International Realty, the Realtor on the $1.549 million residence, says the home is a great fit for the Show House because of its variety of aesthetic and design elements. \u201cThere\u2019s a wide assortment of traditional and nontraditional rooms [that] will appeal to all people\u2019s tastes \u2013 and it gives designers the ability to be contemporary or traditional,\u201d he says, adding that it features \u201ca lot to look at\u201d and \u201call sorts of exciting design choices to experience\u201d for visitors. \u201cIt\u2019s not just a standard center-hall colonial home.\u201d

Rooms featured in the 2017 Show House involve both the main floor and the stately lower level. Downstairs, the abode features a variety of modern luxuries, including a family room, wet bar, sauna, wine cellar and bedroom suite. \u201cIt has contemporary flair but [a] wonderful traditional feel to it,\u201d Wight says of the estate.

Outside, 110 Dielman Road features an attached two-car garage, as well as a detached one-car garage with workspace. A large patio nestles into the manicured yet organic-feeling landscaping, but in case that isn\u2019t enough outdoor entertaining space, the home also features an enclosed, open-air courtyard at its center off the great room. This unique space features ample stonework and endless design possibilities.

When asked what space he\u2019s most excited to see transformed, Wight says: \u201cMy favorite room is the great room, with the timbered ceilings, skylights and windows that look out onto the courtyard and backyard \u2013 it\u2019s a very dramatic, large space.\u201d He also mentions the adjoining open-air courtyard, saying, \u201cIt\u2019s very unique, and I\u2019m sure it\u2019s going to be exciting.\u201d

Furniture can become obsessive, especially when it\u2019s that one-of-a-kind piece that makes the heart quicken and the inspiration flourish. When this happens, that piece of furniture will likely start or even drive the design process of a space. Whether it be a lounge chair covered in jewel-toned velour or a graphic painting with contrasting brushstrokes, a furnishing can certainly influence one\u2019s design decisions.

A person\u2019s wardrobe can have the same effect, as well. An individual in whose closet black garments predominate is likely drawn to a more neutral color palette when it comes to selecting both flooring and paint. However, if an individual frequently adorns herself in Kate Spade, a trendy space that\u2019s both light and feminine would be perfect! The colors and patterns that attract our attention can impact how we look at remodeling our homes.

For example, Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons, who has worked with Dior and Calvin Klein, recently teamed with the Danish textile brand Kvadrat. Together they produced a series of fabrics that were featured on iconic furnishings at the National Academy Museum in New York.

Some of Simons\u2019 inspirations were derived from art, which is not uncommon for designers in all media. Colors, textures and form, which we see throughout our day, can play a role when creating new things.

In the same respect, similarities can often be found in both furniture fabrics and clothing. Although the construction of garment and upholstery textiles can differ, the inspiration behind the designs can be relative.

Menswear is one area of fashion that often has correlating features of furniture designs. The texture and weaving patterns of some men\u2019s suits can be like that of a compact large-grained weave used for furnishings by Kvadrat, above right.

With design, beauty is indeed in the eye the beholder, and we do tend to be consistent with what kind of beauty moves us. Next time you stand in front of your closet to pick out your day\u2019s ensemble, take note of any recurring themes or perhaps your favorite item. Then find the favorite piece of furniture you own. Are they similar? What do both pieces say about your design style?\u00a0

For Lizzy Dooley, matching homes with people was an instinct that ran in her blood. \u201cReal estate found me!\u201d Dooley says. \u201cI grew up respecting my many family members who are in commercial and residential real estate. After three years as a teacher at an elementary school, I decided to give [that career path] a try. I completely fell in love with the fast pace and daily challenges of the industry.\u201d

Joining Laura McCarthy Real Estate, Dooley developed a team as dedicated as she to serving clients most effectively. \u201cBe honest and available,\u201d she advises. \u201cDo whatever it takes to get the deal done. Our motto is to \u2018love where you live.\u2019 The Lizzy Dooley Group is known for being hardworking, honest, enthusiastic, extremely responsive to clients and knowledgeable about the market.\u2019\u201d

Dooley found a career path in which she can thrive at every step. \u201cI am a networker, a people person and a total problem-solver,\u201d she explains. \u201cReal estate is a perfect fit. I love working closely with my clients. It is an honor to help with this huge life change.\u201d

As with any occupation, challenges arise \u2013 but Dooley proves her savviness with each transaction. \u201cBuyers are picky and smart,\u201d she shares. \u201cGetting homes looking great and priced right from day one is so important. It can be difficult to suggest making changes to sellers\u2019 homes because they sometimes get emotional. However, how we live and how homes need to look when it is time to sell are two very different things.\u201d

Her essential understanding of the ins and outs of real estate makes Dooley a natural guide for people looking to buy or sell their homes. \u201cNovember and December are great months to get together for a free consultation about what your home is worth \u2013 and what needs to be done to get it market-ready for the spring,\u201d Dooley says. \u201cHere at The Lizzy Dooley Group, we love our jobs. We take buying and selling real estate very seriously.\u201d [LN dingbat]
